The Family Daughter Book Review & Giveaway!!


Welcome to my first book review & giveaway!  I'd like to introduce a favorite book I've recently read from www.kingsbloomingrose.comThe Family Daughter: Becoming Pillars of Strength In Our Father's House by Sarah L. Bryant is a beautiful softcover book containing ten chapters  (205 pages) that are chock-full of wisdom and encouragement for young ladies. 

 This is one of the best inspirational books I have read, and can be read as part of your devotional.  The ten chapters are: An Abundant Season, In My Father's House, Our Parents' Joy, The Family SisterPillars of Strength, A Humble Maidservant, The Spotless Maid, The Appointed Time, Reflecting the Light, and Bouquet of Beauty.  One of my favorite chapters was The Family Sister where Sarah gives ways to spend time with and edify brothers and sisters.   I learned a lot from this section.

 Personally, I love to read other's people's testimonies, so I was excited to read her as well as other young ladies' testimonies featured throughout the book.  In various parts of the book, the Lord opened my eyes to some things I had never thought about before.  I like how Sarah Bryant writes about everything involved in a Christian young lady's life- encouraging siblings, being our parents' joy, our attitude, modesty, and more!  A the end of each chapter, there is a recommended resources list.  I am so blessed to have read this book, and am more inspired to live every moment for God's glory. 

About the Author:

Sarah L. Bryant is eighteen and the oldest daughter in her family of eight. Her desire is to encourage young ladies to embrace their role as daughters. She is editor of The King’s Blooming Rose, a magazine for girls which she has published for over five years.

Sarah Bryant also publishes a magazine- The King's Blooming Rose- of which I am a subscriber and really enjoy.  You can read about more below:    




The King's Blooming Rose magazine began in February 2005, when homeschooler Sarah Bryant published the first issue. It was very small and sent to about twenty friends. The Lord has greatly blessed this ministry and hundreds of families now receive KBR Magazine all over the United States, Canada, and beyond.

While Sarah handles much of the regular editorial work and design of KBR, her parents often offer guidance and entire family provides support - without it, this effort would be impossible. We are very grateful for the Lord's blessing of this ministry, and for various ways others support this effort!
In 2009, Sarah wrote a book entitled The Family Daughter: Becoming Pillars of Strength In Our Father's House, and we expanded the KBR ministry when she published it in 2010.

Sarah Bryant is graciously offering one of my readers their own copy of The Family Daughter book!
